Default Next years ride!

Well next years ride is set. I am planning on riding down to the south tip of South America on my KLR. It is a charity ride for MS. I plan to leave in Sept 2014 and take 4 months to complete.

Check out my blog at www.AmazingRideforMS.ca

Map is cut off but it looks like you will be coming through Kingsville, Texas on US 77.

Unless you're in some kind of hurry or like the smell of millions of cows, I highly suggest the 101 over the 5 through Southern California. Not that much longer, FAR nicer to travel on. Little to see on that part of the 5. Also, speed limit on the 5 is 75mph - with multitudes of 18-wheelers.

I'm in Santa Maria, off the 101, and have a guest room to offer you.

Good luck either way!

Those are the routes that BaseCamp selected. Not a hard and fast route as long as I get to my points on time.

Santa Maria sounds good, I will PM you.

Thanks

That is what BaseCamp says. The plan is to meet a fellow rider from Florida somewhere in Brownsville TX around Sept 21/22.

Hi Chris

Due to unfortunate circumstances I had to come home early. I got to within 5 km of the Peru border and turned around to return to Bogota to ship the bike and me home. I am having a little problem with my website as I can't update it past Day 54 but WordPress is working on it. Once fixed I'll finish my updates to my returning home about Day 78. I have lots of pictures to post.
